Tues 5th April 2011
Both teams had good wins on Saturday and it is only a couple of weeks since Saints went up to the Valley where the teams fought out a 1-1 draw.
Another close game could be expected as both teams have a lot of good quality for this standard of football.

Adam has had a good season again and has proved his worth to our team. His talent will hopefully show through yet again.
